One Shots: The emperor’s new cosmetics

    
14

“Ever had one of those dreams where you’re declared the sultana’s champion at a royal banquet in FFXIV and realize you aren’t wearing pants?” Hirku Two asked.

In game, no. In real life, yes, but just once. At least when you’re in an MMORPG, there’s no shame, because someone out there has a cosmetic that’s skimpier, weirder, or more shocking than whatever you’re wearing. Or not wearing.

Let’s all welcome Ghalesh to the column, who presents to us this iconic World of Warcraft vista!

“Utakata advised me to submit my screenshots here as well. Some life wisdom: The sky is always clear blue, not matter how bad the storm is.”

SmiteDoctor is over in Elder Scrolls Online smiting the smitten with a smiter’s smittocity. Also, there’s a flamey sword thing, so that’s pretty spiffy.

Vincent took us up on a challenge for a fashion faux pas, once again taking us to the realm of FFXIV. Actually, I don’t agree, because this outfit goes with every season, every occasion, and every buy-one-get-two-free chicken nugget meal promotions.

Hikari says, “Expect to see a lot of shots from Swords of Legends Online from me in the future!”

I, for one, am totally fine with that. It’s definitely a fetching game.

Let your latest screenshot masterpieces rip in the comments section! And if you’re up for a challenge, why not post a picture of a natural — but attractive — monochrome palette in an MMO setting.

Every week, One Shots shines a spotlight on the best community screenshots from your MMO adventures. If you have a great pic to share, email it to justin@massivelyop.com with the subject “One Shots.” Make sure that the picture is over 880px wide and comes with a description or story!

Two FFXIV dungeons here: St. Mocianne’s Arboreteum (Hard) has a beautiful blue-green color scheme in the first area. You can also find some really nice yellow-greens in the Qitana Ravel.

Subtitle for each photo: “I think the 3rd nuke was a bit too much”

Spoiler
Okay, okay, I know this is not too funny. But it is very early in the morning here and my brain is still on standby.

Ghalesh has some more great screen shots in Wrup, please take them into consideration.

Wow, thx SmiteDoctor :) Yeah, I was pretty late for this One Shot, Sunday was a very busy day (it is already Monday dawn in EU).

Don’t get much more monochrome than Cold Harbor.

Blue is the colour of the red sky…

Heh, thanks for the feature. Taking the weekend off to deal with the shame.

Amusingly enough, I shot these last night with the intent of posting them this morning. Not exactly monochrome, but pretty saturated.

Couple more PSO2: New Genesis shots from this week.

Including one of where we aspire to be? I need to find out how one gets up there or if it’s just tweeting.

Everything is irrelevant for I have a double scythe.

It’s too hot here, not up to any sort of challenge :)

Is it November yet?

I still remember first time i saw this world boss in Queensdale, still a beginner in GW2, i was in awe of its sheer size and afraid to get close, now i hit it in the face with my bear Jeffery.

If you don’t like swampy colors then here is a screenshot for Tarir City, it’s all golden and green.

It’s hard to get a monochrome screen in GW2, except i think snowy zones but then it’ll be just mostly white screenshot with no details :-)

Usually when it’s claws are close enough to sign it’s autograph on your toon, and yet half it’s body is still behind the trees in the distance…

…so yeah, the technical term is *Bleep!*ing big here. o.O
